The room had good a.c.which was needed because it was 90 degrees the 3 days. Pool was refreshing and ok the chairs were in need of some updates around the pool. Great location close to several restaurants, not the best place to stay but was cheap and serviceable at best.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a few days as one of many stops on a long road trip. Since we had a lot of stops to make, we tried to get the cheapest hotel in each city to save money. We've seen our share on 1 star hotels, but damn this was by far the worst. Shady characters... More

Please believe the previous poor reviews about this property. Where do I begin? Exterior: parking areas full of garbage and cigarette butts, guys hanging around in the parking lot behind, drinking beer and throwing garbage on the ground, a camper parked with a smoker and about 8 guys staying in it. Peeling paint, all windows completely filthy, stained carpet everywhere.... More

My husband and I will dine out on stories about this motel for years to come. I will write a simplified, site-appropriate review of this motel. We travelled to Grand Rapids to visit an ill relative. I made the mistake of not booking a chain motel prior to our arrival, expecting that we would find one easily at one of... More

I booked a two night room through Orbitiz for my boss and when he went to check out after the first night due to the suspicious people hanging around outside at night they charged him again. I have been trying to get my money back for the night they charged him there and the lady is hanging up on me... More

Definitely not a resort! However, the price cannot be beat. If you are looking for a room to sleep in when just passing through, this will do just fine. We were in town for a day of shopping and arrived the night before. The price lured us here and we would probably consider this property in the future, but only... More

Hotel was clean and reservation was good. Thermostat in heater worked poorly. Breakfast was disappointing. Only choice was waffle, cold cereal or bagel. Children next door at 6:30 am were fighting so sleep was disturbed. Wifi did work well Otherwise fine

I stayed at the Knight's Inn, at 3524 28th St SE, Grand Rapids, Mi, from Sept. 17-Sept. 19, 2014. I went to Grand Rapids to attend a Seminar. On Sept. 18, after the seminar, I returned to the motel, stopped at the desk to check to see when the check-out time was the next morning. The lady at the desk... More

Stayed here for two nights. The term *you get what you pay for* is definitely applicable for this hotel. Hallways have a slight smell, carpets and walls aren't spotless, rooms were outdated, but for less than half the price of all other hotels in the area for a night on a weekend - you can't really complain. I personally don't... More

I booked this hotel room by accident. It seems like this is more like a half-way house than a motel. First of all it is filthy and a bad smell permeates the whole place. I didn't want to touch anything. I couldn't believe I was staying in this place but I had already spent the $70. The bed squeaked, there... More
